A new TORMAX circular-sliding automatic entrance welcomes staff and students to the Si Yuan Centre of Contemporary Chinese Studies at the University of Nottingham. Delivering an entrance up to 40% larger than linear sliding doors, this dual set of contemporary 180° glass doors create a strong architectural statement whilst maximising available space to ensure smooth through-flow of pedestrian traffic.
The Universitys estate portfolio benefits from over seventy-five TORMAX automatic entrance systems. A planned service and maintenance contract ensures ongoing reliability of key entrances, whilst minimising call-out charges and unscheduled down-time.
The Si Yuan Centre was constructed to provide high quality office, teaching and learning spaces including language labs for the School of Contemporary Chinese Studies, the Confucius Institute and the University in general. Completed to an extremely high standard throughout, the Si Yuan Centre incorporates numerous innovative sustainable initiatives such as photovoltaic panels for electricity generation and ground source heat pumps.
An international, market leader in the design, manufacture and installation of automatic entrance systems, TORMAX has over 60 years experience developing cutting edge operators to drive their wide range of folding, revolving, swing and sliding doors.
